I have never fished the Glavans but have fondled them so much it could be considered a misdemeanor
Wierd on that 3/4 being like that, sad the sales person shoved it in the display and some one will end up buying it and then have to take action. I hear you on the overall weight of the 3/4. I didn't even try to put it on my 10 footer.
Post reviews of the galvan when you can, and a little rod/reel porn never hurts around here
